FANDOM


In an effort to standardize the information and look of each monster article, this section outlines the formatting for monster pages. Repeated failure to follow this formatting can result in a ban.

Infobox

The template: InfboxMonster is used and always appears first on the page. The "title" field automatically uses the page name, so there is no need to use this variable.

Images

Insert the following coding, replacing MONSTER with the appropriate name (remembering case sensitivity):

<gallery>
 MONSTER_3.png|Adult
 MONSTER_2.png|Juvenile
 MONSTER_1.png|Baby
 MONSTER_0.png|Egg</gallery>

Rarity

Various templates already exist and will automatically categorize the page when used:

{{rarityc}}
 {{rarityu}}
 {{rarityr}}
 {{raritye}}
 {{rarityl}}

Elements

Various templates already exist and will automatically categorize the page when used. Use {{ELEMENT}} replacing ELEMENT with the appropriate element name. For legendary monsters, {{special}} is used. The Monster Legends Wiki strives for consistency, so remember the proper order of elements: special, nature, fire, earth, thunder, water, dark, magic, light, and metal.

Number

This is the monster's number in the Monstagram.

Rarity Color

This field determines the color scheme of the infobox. Simply type the rarity of the monster here.

Prev and Next

This area is for the links to the previous and next monsters appearing in the Monstagram. Use {{prev|MONSTER}} on Prev and {{next|MONSTER}} for Next.

Description

This is the description used in the game for the monster. Contrary to normal formatting rules, do not bold the first use of the monster's name if it appears, but do link the first occurrence of any other monster.

Stats and Information

Utilize the {{Stats}} template,

Stats

Enter the appropriate numbers without commas. The template will automatically add commas back in and recalculate the stats for each rank.

Trait

Various templates already exist and will automatically categorize the page when used. See a full list of available templates here.

Book

Various templates already exist and will automatically categorize the page when used. They are simply the book's name. If the monster is in no book, the template {{nobook}} is used. The Monster Legends Wiki strives for consistency, so remember the proper order of books: beginner, dragon, spirits, winged, sea, underworld, mechanical, female, undead, winter, good legions, evil legions, superheroes, families, team wars, exclusive, adventurers, villains, and then any limited time books.

Relics

Various templates already exist and will automatically categorize the page when used. They are simply the relic's type.

Breeding

Use a bulleted list. For unbreedable monsters (most of them), just use "Unbreedable". Do not insert breeding event breeding combinations here as those will be on a separate article. Only list permanent breeding combinations.

Skills

Utilize the {{Skills}} template.

Element

Each skill has its own elemental type. Use the {{ELEMENTskill}} template, replacing ELEMENT with the appropriate type. For example, {{specialskill}}, {{physicalskill}}, or {{fireskill}}.

Target

Various templates already exist:

  • self = {{tars}}
  • single enemy = {{tarse}}
  • multiple enemies = {{tarme}}
  • single ally = {{tarsa}}
  • multiple allies = {{tarma}}

Text

This column has been reworked to only include information any additional effects that occur beyond damage or cooldown. Various templates already exist for status effects and will automatically categorize the page when used. See a full list of available templates here.

Trivia

Trivia should include information players may find interesting about the monster such as:

  • sharing a similar design with another monster
  • non-obvious references contained in the monster's description, skill set, name, or design
  • unique features about the monster

Trivia should not include:

  • mere descriptions about the monster's appearance or repetition of the monster's description
  • descriptions about how the monster's appearance changes from evolution to evolution
  • strategy
  • mere speculation
  • non-specific references/inspiration to general concepts and ideas
  • how the monster's stats compare to other monsters - we have sortable stats tables and category pages for these purposes

Not every monster will necessarily require a trivia entry. Use links when applicable, giving preference to other Fandom community articles.

Category

While most categories are automatically added by templates, one additional category must be manually added: a category for hybrid monsters (which is all monsters except commons). Simply type the elements separated by a backslash, remembering the proper order of elements. For example: Nature/Magic or Fire/Dark. For legendary monsters, do not use a backslash. For example: Legendary Water.
